A great place for the whole family to start a Forest of Dean adventure

Beechenhurst lies in the heart of the Forest of Dean, one of Britain's oldest and largest woodlands. It is the ideal place for families to start their forest adventure, with a Gruffalo Spotters trail, Sculpture Trail, play area, Go Ape Tree Top Adventure and climbing tower. You can even bring your bikes and access the wider forest on our Family Cycle Trail. Don't forget to refuel in the café or bring your own food to enjoy in our beautiful picnic area.
